After the Opaka Raka, I decided to stick with the lime theme but switch gears to an agave drink. The recipe that had caught my attention was the Mexican Fix from the July/August 2012 issue of Imbibe Magazine. The drink was created by Robyn Gray of the Reflections bar at the Hotel Georgia in Vancouver, British Columbia. I was lured in for two reasons. The first was that the idea of a tequila variation of Harry Johnson's Brandy Fix was intriguing. The other was the curiousity of tasting a recent recipe from that Vancouver hotel after trying older ones like the Hotel Georgia from Ted Saucier's Bottoms Up.
